split cv boots
I posted this in the general tech forum but there are some smart diesel folks out there. Can anyone tell me where to find cv repair boots that have a side seam that can be bolted closed. My car is a 81 240D. I've seen "universal" ones but I want ones that are a specific fit for my vehicle. Does anyone know of universal ones that are a proper fit? This is intended to be a temporary fix until I can install the new axles which I already have. The boots are torn but the joints aren't making much noise and there is only a small amount play in the axle when you turn it with your hand. If I can find the boots, how can I clean the joints before I install the boots and grease? Should I drench the joints with parts cleaner? Thanks for your good advice.
